This new compilation of Eartha Kitt classics is a great clear and crisp C.D. for lovers of 'The Worlds Most Exciting Woman'. This 'Lounge' set is truly exceptional and contains many hard to find gems. Included are superior early 60's re-recordings of 'Just An Old Fashioned Girl', 'C'Est Si Bon' 'My Heart Belongs To Daddy' and a fantastic uptempo version of 'I Want To Be Evil' that shows this feline Catwoman at her best. Miss Kitt is in peak form here doing standards such as 'Love For Sale', 'Whatever Lola Wants', 'Never On Sunday' and the rare 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend'. She purrs and growls her way through classy and distinctive renditions of 'Mack The Knife', 'A Lady Loves' and the festive tease 'Santa Baby'. Definitely for the bachelor pad or cocktail party. Robert Rechter. AUSTRALIA Jan 2002.

This CD features some great recordings of Eartha's classics ("C'est Si Bon", "Just an Old Fashioned Girl"), as well as some harder-to-find tracks of Eartha singing other 1950s/60s standards. I have an extensive collection of Eartha LPs, but none of them include "Mack the Knife" or "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" or "Whatever Lola Wants," all of which are on this import CD. Another terrific cut is "All I Want Is All There Is (And Then Some)"--Eartha at her best!

She may not have had Piaf's musical instrument or the full, flowing facial geography (but what sculpture!) of a Garbo, or the irresistible, girl-next-door wholesome charm of a Garland or Doris Day, but she was the institution of cabaret personified not to mention the most fatally feline femme fatale of them at all--so much so that Orson Welles (like her, an American institution) looked upon her as an epic Circe, even casting her as the woman whose allure led to the Trojan War and to the fall of one of the world's great civilizations (undoubtedly a more convincing Helen than the one cast opposite Richard Burton ten years later). Yet cabaret superstars such as Marlene, Nina, Lena (the inferior Madonna was too exalted to emerge from her panoply of costumes, effects, and microphones long enough to "lower herself" to be a cabaret performer) frequently receive more attention than the inarguable master--Eartha Kitt OWNED cabaret, gifted with deceptively towering talent, superlative linguistic skills, and the sophisticated awareness that allowed her simultaneously to let the audience in on the joke yet be utterly seduced (if not enslaved) by this material woman. We may not have realized it at the time, but for Eartha life was a grand party, and each of us was a privileged guest, privileged to be on her inclusive guest list.

To put it plainly, Eartha Kitt was underrated, and it's somewhat sad that for those who still remember her, her career is essentially reduced to two representative but nonetheless inadequate moments: her recording of "Santa Baby" and her role as The Catwoman in the '60s television series (she alone surpassed all of the Tim Burton big screen versions).

PURRFECT: THE EARTHA KITT COLLECTION is a digitally remastered CD that contains the 60s re-recordings of such standards as "I Want To Be Evil" and "Santa Baby." As another reviewer stated, these are the uptempo recordings and I adore these versions!

The tracks sound loud and clear as though Eartha was right in your house, and the CD was produced in 2000. Also included on this album is "Just An Old Fashioned Girl," "Mack The Knife," "My Heart Belongs To Daddy," and "C'Est Si Bon," among others.

I became familiar with Eartha's work from the album The Best of Eartha Kitt, which was produced in 1982 and featured the uptempo recordings. I still have that CD but wanted one that was remastered and PURRFECT... is perfect for that. I'm sure fans would love this CD and this is a great starter for those who would like to get a taste of this legendary performer.

RIP, Eartha! There will never be another one like her.

My partner heard a couple of Eartha Kitt's songs and wanted more. This CD is a perfect intro to remind us of the seductress' singing talents. She takes you on a ride. Recommend you take a look at Eatha Kitt as the Plaza Album. Same songs but she toys with the audience. Such talent.

Ah-h-h, what a cover; what a CD! Eartha will put you in your place and you'll be happy to be there. Some sultry innuendo beautifully sung, a bit jazzy, and all quality. Watch-out Santa Baby! This is a fine collection of her songs- smoothly sung cabaret/lounge music, which may leave you wanting more. Eartha puts her special touch and timing on the songs; just relax and enjoy this introduction. Ver-r-ry recommended ; )

Eartha's distinctive lovely voice never fails to soothe and her clever lyrics never cease to amuse. I was lucky enough to see her preform in person. It was a delightful and memorable experience.
Heaps of Blessings on all who made this CD! Many Thanks!
